Appearing as if woven from canes of shimmering gold, Masquerade is an ambitious sculptural work. Initially created from layers of clear glass canes, the final finish of metal, adds a sumptuous appearance. Highlighting every fold of this luxurious 'cloth' the embellishment adds refinement and poise.
Shilling experiments with layering and fusing glass to produce beautiful one-off sculptures. Her innovative pieces push the material beyond our usual comfort zones. Glass rods are woven together like fabric, mimicking the flexibility and movement of cloth. The apparent frailty of the glass is balanced by the strong dynamic forms and differing levels of light pick out the various strands making up each unique piece.
The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
